Flu shot if I feel like I''m already getting sick

Hi there

I was planning on getting the flu shot this year but then started two weeks ago with frequent sneezing, post nasal drip and phlegm. Today I have a scratchy throat and runny nose. Is it a good idea to get the flu shot if I am already possibly getting a cold? We are trying to conceive so I want to protect my body against the nasty flu strains in case I get pregnant.
